  • Overview

    A grey 2023 Chevy Equinox is angled left.

    The 2023 Chevy Equinox continues a long tradition by blending versatility and practicality with affordability and comfort. What else would we expect from the bowtie brand? These characteristics have defined the Equinox since its official debut in 2005 as a spacious and well-equipped midsize crossover. The Equinox carved its niche in the Chevy family over the next decade, earning widespread acclaim for its versatility and efficiency. For its third generation, the SUV reinvented itself as a compact crossover. The transformation marked a new era for the SUV, introducing drivers to new technology, fuel-sipping efficiency, and advanced driver-assist features.

    Today, the 2023 Equinox builds on that legacy and reflects Chevy's promise to make every day a getaway in this sophisticated SUV. It is one of the most affordable models in the segment, even with an entry-level trim equipped with an array of standard features that add to its value. In addition, options like the Midnight Edition and Redline Edition sweeten the lineup by allowing drivers to customize the SUV to their style, offering upgrades like Gloss Black aluminum wheels, exclusive badging, and unique body-color details.

    But what else does Chevrolet's popular SUV offer drivers? You'll find the thoughtfully designed 2023 Equinox is full of surprises and adds several new exterior color options, including Harvest Bronze Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat. Chevrolet also ups the ante by increasing the SUV's power output and enhancing its stopping power with E-boost electronic power-assisted brakes to give the Equinox an engaging driving dynamic that differentiates it from rivals.

  • Trims

    Performance and Value

    Chevrolet's founders, William C Durant and Louis Chevrolet, sought to build vehicles that would offer incredible performance and value. The 2023 Equinox is a modern-day example of that vision because its multi-trim lineup gives drivers more of what they want and need at a fraction of the cost. So, what does this look like in the SUV?

    The LS trim sets the tone for the four-trim fleet, laying a solid foundation with a healthy suite of standard features that few rivals can beat. For example, the LS comes standard with Chevy Safety Assist, which outfits the SUV with Automatic Emergency Braking, a Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high beams. Chevy makes the LS trim even more enticing by adding LED headlamps, exclusive Teen Driver technology, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. For a more bespoke SUV, you can customize the LS by opting for the Midnight Edition, which adds 18-inch Gloss Black wheels, black Chevy badging, body-color mirror caps, and a unique grille.

    Features and Options

    Moving to the second-tier trim puts you behind the wheel of the LT, which builds on the LS. The LT adds LED daytime running lamps, a power driver's seat with power lumbar control, and a multi-color driver information center display that puts vital information within immediate view. Next in the fleet is the RS trim, which adds LED taillamps, a power liftgate, and Front and Rear Park Assist to make parking the SUV more convenient. Finally, the top-tier Premier trim is fully loaded and features exclusive 18-inch machined-face aluminum wheels, a hands-free power liftgate, and the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus system on an eight-inch color touchscreen display.

    The Premier reaches next-level sophistication with the Redline Edition package. This package outfits the fully loaded SUV with 19-inch black wheels with red accents and black center caps for a sporty aesthetic. The black bowtie emblems, red outlining on the badges, and redline decals on the side mirrors enhance the look. Black detailing throughout the interior and exterior, from the window surround and door handles to the Black Ice interior, adds to the Redline Edition's stealthy appearance.

  • Performance and Handling

    Engaging and Responsive

    Chevrolet gives drivers every reason to enjoy their time behind the wheel by making the 2023 Equinox engaging and responsive. The Equinox's standard 1.5L turbocharged engine gives drivers plenty of power and capability. Chevrolet made several updates to the powerplant for 2023, proving it continues to improve with age. These upgrades take the 1.5L to an overall power output of 175 horses and 203 lb-ft of torque, making the SUV easy to handle at any speed and guaranteeing optimal off-the-line acceleration, whether navigating in-town traffic or gaining highway speed.

    The Equinox gains five additional horsepower compared to last year's model, which feels like more thanks to the smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. The transmission effortlessly optimizes the Equinox's performance, while available options like the all-wheel drive system take it to the next level. How so? The switchable all-wheel drive system gives the Equinox a unique advantage and offers drivers the best of both worlds––efficient power and plenty of control.

    All-Terrain Efficiency

    The all-wheel drive system monitors the terrain and the SUV's performance to optimize traction, minimize wheel slip, and improve handling in slippery conditions. As a result, you have more control over the SUV in snowy or rainy conditions. Additionally, Chevrolet extends the system's capability by giving you the option to leave it on year-round. On other models, this would dramatically impact efficiency, but that isn't the case with the Equinox. Instead, the system is intelligent enough to engage the rear wheels as needed, maintaining the Equinox's remarkable efficiency without hindering performance.

    As expected, this efficiency still looks different between the all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive models. The front-wheel drive Equinox is rated for 26 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. However, opting for the switchable all-wheel drive doesn't dramatically impact the Equinox's fuel-sipping characteristics, with the all-wheel drive model getting 24 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. The difference is nominal and well worth the enhanced capability and confidence the all-wheel drive technology offers.

  • Connectivity and Safety

    Comprehensive Technology

    Chevrolet is dedicated to keeping drivers informed and connected by outfitting its lineup with the latest technology. The 2023 Equinox is an exceptional example of this and comes standard with a comprehensive suite of features that ensures you have all the information you need wherever the road takes you. This technology starts with the Chevy Safety Assist suite that comes standard across the lineup. It includes features like Automatic Emergency Braking, IntelliBeam automatic high beams, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking, a Following Distance Indicator, and Forward Collision Alert.

    The 2023 Equinox also comes standard with Chevrolet's exclusive Teen Driver technology, making the SUV ideal for parents with young drivers at home. The technology allows parents to set driving parameters and associate those parameters with their child's key fob. Then, after a teen returns home, parents can access an in-vehicle report card that offers teachable moments to promote safe driving habits.

    Improve Your Experience

    Beyond this technology and the standard Chevy Safety Assist suite, Chevrolet gives you every opportunity to expand your visibility and improve your experience in the driver's seat. You can outfit the Equinox with advanced safety features like Front and Rear Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, an HD Surround Vision Camera, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and OnStar Safety & Security. Together, these features form Chevrolet's comprehensive safety suite that actively enhances your focus to minimize the potential for a collision.

    These driver-assist features are among the 2023 Equinox's key selling points, but so are the SUV's connectivity features. The Equinox is one of the few SUVs in the industry to come standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, adding convenience and value to the already well-priced SUV. This connectivity is easily accessible via the Chevrolet Infotainment System, centralized on a standard seven-inch display or an available eight-inch display with Connected Navigation. Chevrolet also equips the Equinox with a WiFi hotspot and a virtual assistant via Alexa Built-In.
